Winnebago Tribe enters deal to host wind farm on reservation

The Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska signed a deal to host a wind farm on the reservation.

The tribe is working with Bluestem Energy Solutions. The deal calls for a 10-megawatt wind farm, enough to power 3,500 homes.

"The tribe realized during its study of wind energy that it would need a significant partner with the resources to complete the multimillion dollar project," Chairman John Blackhawk said in a press release.

Groundbreaking is scheduled for 2013.
